About this document
The Australian Government is committed to improving how we manage and value our natural capital. The Government is investing to improve our understanding of natural capital at the national, regional and local scale.
Improved management of our natural capital provides direct productivity outcomes to the businesses that are dependent on it. It can also reduce the risks posed to productivity from our changing climate. Improved understandings of these links will unlock private sector investment in our environment on private lands.
In addition, the financial and banking sectors can make more informed decisions about their existing investments, as well as engaging with new opportunities in emerging environmental and natural capital markets.
